The Best Beauty Products for Fall, According to Our Beauty Director
A machine-washable makeup sponge (finally!), plus seven other beauty buys to simplify your routine.
1 Makeup Eraser The Sponge
Soft and squishy, this nonabsorbent sponge evenly distributes foundation without wasting precious product. Use it dry for full coverage, or dampen it for a sheer tint. The wow factor: The sponge snaps into a vented ball, so you can clean it in the laundry with a load of towels.
2 Dr. Pawpaw Scrub & Nourish
One pot, two products. Massage the sugar scrub over lips to buff away flakes. Wipe off residue, then swipe on the olive-oil-infused balm. Psst: It softens heels too.
3 Colleen Rothschild Beauty “Breast” Friend Self-Exam Butter
Follow the steps on the jar to check for lumps. Floral-scented murumuru butter helps fingers glide, so the process feels less scary and more like self-care.
4 Faace Skincare Masks in Period, Sweaty, and Tired
Let the name tell you which mask you need. After a workout? Slather on Sweaty. A restless night? Tired. That time of the month? Period.
5 Trinny London Miracle Blur
Before you put on makeup, apply this around your eyes or lips to temporarily fill and soften lines.
6 Velour Beauty Lash & Go Eyeliner and Lash Adhesive Hybrid
Falsies just got easier. Instead of fussing with glue, rim your eyes with this black liquid liner and place lashes on top to set ’em and forget ’em.
7 EleVen Unrivaled Sun Serum SPF 35
This lightweight serum feels so elegant and blends so well, you almost can’t believe it’s a physical sunscreen. Prickly pear is a hydration bonus.
8 Pipette Baby Cream to Powder
OK, it’s meant to prevent diaper rash, but this talc-free, no-mess lotion soothes irritation on chafe-prone spots, like your inner thighs and below your boobs.
